2. Set Subject - Movie or Book Title - Creative Interpretation

There are many ways to interpret this set subject. This is a creative interpretation.

  • literally - a direct interpretation of the title eg. Fifty Shades of Grey could be a photo of shades of grey.
  • figuratively - an interpretation of the themes of the story. eg. Love Story - depicts the themes of love and relationships, or of loss and death. Make up scenes that show this, and shoot them. Use models, or use props....
  • Recreate the iconic scenes from the movie, using models.
